    Crashed by Criticism? 

    Responding resourcefully to disapprovals.
    All of us encounter criticism from others; the way we deal with it can either significantly enhance our lives, or it can make us depressed and sour. It’s easy to”take it personally” when someone criticises what we do, or to magnify the importance of the criticism.
    In this interactive bitesize learning over the Internet or face-to-face, you can learn a specific process that has enabled many others to respond resourcefully to criticism.
    Find out how to develop the skill to maintain distance between yourself and criticism and keep you from automatically feeling bad, and allowing you to calm evaluate the meaning of criticism before responding to it!

    Emotional intelligence is defined as:

    “A set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.”

    Change doesn’t have to be traumatic. 

    Did you know that leadership and management serve different functions and achieve different things, and, importantly, that they can happily coexist. For most organizations, it’s crucial to embrace both?

    They are different  in terms of actions, processes and behaviors.

    Building best-of-both-worlds organizations, with structures that incorporate management and leadership approaches is an important challenge.

    It’s possible for companies to grow and adapt to new circumstances, without having to give up all that’s familiar and effective. Where there’s a determination to survive and a commitment to adapt, change doesn’t have to be traumatic.

    Manage for today and lead for tomorrow!

    Are you yelling at an empty boat? 

    “A young farmer paddled his boat vigorously up river. He was covered with sweat as he paddled his boat upstream to deliver his produce to the village. It was a hot day, and he wanted to make his delivery and get home before dark. As he looked ahead, he spied another vessel, heading rapidly downstream toward his boat. He rowed furiously to get out of the way, but it didn’t seem to help.

    He shouted, “Change direction! You are going to hit me!” The boat came straight towards him anyway. It hit his boat with a violent thud. The young man cried out, “You idiot! How could you manage to hit my boat in the middle of this wide river?”

    As he glared into the boat, seeking out the individual responsible for the accident, he realized that there was no one. He had been screaming at an empty boat that had broken free of its moorings and was floating downstream with the current.”

    Learn to respond, not react!

    Accept what is and change what you can change.

    Emotionally Intelligent? 

    Emotional intelligence is not the cure-all to the world’s problems.

    Emotional intelligence is also not about constantly suppressing your emotions, or never disagreeing with others.

    Emotional intelligence is a set of skills that prevents you from being dominated by your feelings, and keeps your emotions from getting in the way of making the decision you really want to make–as opposed to the one that “feels right” at the time, but leads to major regret.

    In short, it’s about making emotions work for you, instead of against you! Use that information to inform and guide behaviour.

    And if you don’t work to develop it, it’s  all too easy to become a victim.

    Gaining the Slight Edge! 

    The slight edge is enough to enable one person to exceed the achievements of others to an almost unbelievable degree. Yet the difference in skill, ability, and intelligence between winners and losers is almost always very small and insignificant.

    When two people are approximately equal in all other qualities, an attitude of positive expectancy makes the winning difference in their performance.

    There is power in positive expectancy. 

    More than any other characteristic, quality, or trait of human personality, an attitude of positive expectancy is the companion of success in every achievement, every worth- while venture, every upward step in human progress.

    William James, the founder of American psychology, said:

    “The one thing that will guarantee the successful conclusion of a doubtful undertaking is faith in the begin- ning that you can do it.”
